Hudson Bay Inspired Baby Blanket

I love the simplicity of this blanket, for either a baby, throw, or a bedspread – plus it’s a super simple project for beginners.  There is a great tutorial on weaving in ends on garter stitch HERE. 

We recommend using a basic, superwash Peruvian wool yarn like Cascade 220 Superwash,  or if you want something a bit fancier, we like the super soft, plush and machine washable, hand dyed merino Malabrigo Rios – both are available in our bricks & mortar and online store.

Yarn Options

  • Cascade 220 Superwash: 6 ball 817 Aran, and 1 of each: 1950 Hunter Green, 877 Golden, 893 Ruby, 885 In the Navy (or for a slightly brighter palette try 864 Christmas Green, 821 Daffodil, 809 Really Red, and 885 In the Navy)
  • Malabrigo Rios: 6 skeins 063 Natural, and 1 skein of each: 033 Cereza, 096 Sunset, 128 Fresco Y Seco, 150 Azul Profundo.
  • Berroco Vintage: 6 skeins 5101 Mochi, and 1 of each: 5151 Cardinal, 5121 Sunny, 5152 Mistletoe, 5143 Dark Denim.
  • Cascade Avalon: 6 skeins 01 White or 30 Ecru, and 1 skein of each: 38 Deep Blue, 04 Crimson, 10 Artisan’s Gold, 13 Treetop.
